Where can a good cover for a 170 MONTAUK be purchased? The 17 Whaler covers in catalogs like Cabelas are made to the classic MONTAUK 17.

For views at different angles, of the Mills cover on a [b]170 Montauk[/url], visit Barney's website about his 170:

I haven't received the cover yet but I ordered through i-boats. The Hurricane cover is the same material as the Mills. The main reason I chose the Hurricane is due to the fact that it covers the bow rail and doesn't require the installation of permanent attachment points (as Mills does).

I've got the Hurricane cover Divedog references for my 170 (purchased from another forum member). Works and looks great.

I have the same Hurricane for my 170. It fits like a glove and can get drum tight. It is a very well made cover.

If I had it to do over again I would buy a foward shelter and have an aft curtain made as was done on some of the Outrages. Look at the bottom of the following:
